Grapevine Cold Hardiness in California's Central Coast Region

To monitor the incidence of low temperature injury in selected vineyard locations in the Paso Robles area of California. By specifically determining injury incidence under varying conditions, researchers will be able to develop a predictive database model of injury occurrence.

Effects of Vine Root Aeration on Table Grape Productivity

To offer a possible method of increasing vineyard productivity in low and high yield vineyards using relatively inexpensive technology – namely, high efficiency, venturi-type injectors that are effective in promoting a more aerobic root zone environment.

Improving Cultural Practices for Producing Premium Quality Cabernet Sauvignon Fruit and Wine in California’s San Joaquin Valley

To determine the effect of irrigation and nutrition management on vine physiology, growth, fruit composition, yield component, vineyard water and nutrient use efficiency; to produce and evaluate commercial quantities of wine from each treatment by submission to trained panels; and to identify and recommend the best cultural practices to the wine grape industry for production of high quality fruit and wine of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Enhancing Quality and Marketability of Central California Winegrapes and Grapes for Concentrate

To establish research and demonstration vineyards to test and illustrate the impact of cultural practices on production of quality grapes in the warm climate of Central California. These vineyard sites will be chosen to compliment existing research and demonstration vineyards already in operation under other funding sources.

Commercializing a New Raisin Product: California Golden Sun Dried Raisins

To expand the number of growers and tons of “Dried on the Vine” (DOV) raisins produced and perform additional taste panel research and market acceptance.

Application of near infrared spectroscopy to commercial vineyards to map wine grape quality prior to harvest

1. To quantify the within-vineyard variability based on near-infrared spectrometry and multivariate data analysis and improve our understanding of the grid sampling required to achieve optimum predictability. 2. To evaluate the usefulness of a portable near-infra-red spectrometer (NIRS) to monitor wine grape fruit quality in the vineyard. 3. To evaluate the ability to use a combination of NIRS and global positioning systems (GPS) to create a “quality” map of the vineyard. Objective 4. To facilitate and participate in the modification of a mechanical harvester to accomplish a commercial “differential harvest / field streaming”.

Wine Grape Crop Yield Estimation

. The project objectives are to develop a mathematical model and associated statistical methods for use in improving yield estimates. Our goal is to obtain yield estimates accurate to within 5%. We propose to complete the following Phase I tasks: (1) quantify variability in yield for a Test Vineyard; (2) assess cost and accuracy of current cluster counting methods and new technologies for cluster counting; (3) determine relationship between cluster counting sampling density and yield accuracy and variance; and (4) develop Test Vineyard site-specific mathematical model for yield estimation.
